The Chandos Choir is one of the older established choirs in South London/Surrey, and was formed over 60 years ago, changing its name to the Chandos Choir in 1969. Members' ages range from 30 to 80, we are OPEN for new members to join us in all voice-parts (we have particular need of sopranos and altos at present).
We have a membership of about 30 at present. Our conductor is the excellent Robert Randall, well-known and respected local musician. Although many members sight-read to some degree, several that are just learning, so come and have a go and we will support and help. There are even some Summer workshops to assist in smaller groups.
We meet at Coulsdon Methodist Church Hall, Brighton Road, Coulsdon CR5 2BE on MONDAY evenings at 7.45pm, closing at 9.45pm with a break part-way through for tea and cake.
If you have any queries please contact us, or just come along to try us, and we will talk about membership details. We are also listed on the gerontius.net choral web portal and you can also see our future concerts in the gerontius.net concert diary. We are registered charity number 262674.
